You wonder why so many computer geeks use pseudonyms not longer than three letters? There are several reasons:
- The refuse to use graphical user interfaces, and when you have to type everthing in, it's best to have as few letters as possible.
- They go crazy for acronyms like »The Flying Egg«, which results in »TFE«.
- They play lots of video games and in most games you are just allowed three letters in the hiscore list.
The last reason is the most important one by the way.
